Pairing the Raptor Remote

Pairing a Remote to One Raptor

  1. Press and hold the Up button and the Down button on the Remote at the same time until the Anchor Selection LEDs and the Mode LED on the Remote begin to scroll red, green, red and red. Then release them.
  2. Immediately press the Pair button on the Indicator Panel located on the Raptor Pump Assembly. The PAIR/Maintenance LED will begin to flash blue. The Raptor and Remote will go into Pairing Mode for 30 seconds. If a signal with three fast beeps occurs, the Raptor and Remote have successfully paired. If 30 seconds pass while in Pairing Mode and they do not successfully pair, a chirp will sound from the Pump Assembly, signaling that the Pairing has timed out.
  3. If the Pair is unsuccessful, repeat the process.

Pairing a Remote to Two Raptors

  1. Press and hold the Up button and the Down button on the Remote at the same time until the Anchor Selection LEDs and the Mode LED on the Remote begin to scroll red, green, red and red. Then release them.
  2. Immediately press the Pair button on the Indicator Panel located on the Pump Assembly of one of the Raptors. The PAIR/Maintenance LED on both Raptors will begin to flash blue. The Raptor and Remote will go into Pairing Mode for 30 seconds.
  3. If a signal with three fast beeps occurs, the Raptor and Remote have successfully paired. If 30 seconds pass while in Pairing Mode and they do not successfully pair, a chirp will sound from the Pump Assembly signaling that the Pairing has timed out.
  4. If the Pair is unsuccessful, repeat the process.

Clearing Paired Remotes or Devices from the Raptor

  1. Retract the anchor on the Raptor by pressing the Up button located on the Indicator Panel on the Pump Assembly

  • Auto Up Button
    Single press to auto retract the anchor. Press and hold to continually retract the anchor. The anchor will continue to retract when the button is held until the button is released. Also used to pair the Remote to a Raptor.

  • Auto Down Button
    Double press to auto deploy the anchor. Double press and hold the second press to continually deploy the anchor. The anchor will continue to deploy when the button is held until it reaches its full range of operation or until the button is released. Also used to pair the Remote to a Raptor.

  • Anchor Mode Button
    Single press to display the current Anchor Mode. While the mode is displayed, continue to single press through the Anchor Modes to change them. This will toggle through the Anchor Modes of Standard, Rough Water, Soft Bottom and Auto Bottom. Standard Mode is identified when the Mode LED flashes between red and green. Rough Water mode is identified when the Mode LED flashes red and Soft Bottom when the Mode LED flashes green. Auto Bottom Mode is only available on the Active Anchoring Model and is identified by a Mode LED that flashes slowly from green to green and then red to red. On the Active Anchoring Model, the Anchor Mode button will also enable and disable Active Anchoring. Active Anchoring is engaged and disengaged by a single press and hold. When the Mode LED displays green it is enabled and when the Mode LED displays red it is disabled.

  • Speed Button / Anchor Selection Button
    Single press to display the current operating speed. While the speed is displayed, continue to single press through the operating speed to toggle between slow, medium and fast. The Mode LED will flash red three consecutive times at the speed that corresponds with the selected speed. Pressing and holding the button will toggle the remote to control either the Port, Starboard or both anchors (when two anchors are paired in the system). The Raptor Selection LEDs will illuminate to correspond to the anchor(s) selected. The right LED will illuminate when the Starboard anchor is selected and the left LED will illuminate when the Port anchor is selected. Both the right and left LEDs illuminate when both anchors are selected.

  3. The paused deployment can be resumed by pressing the Down button again in the same manner.
  4. If continuing to deploy the Raptor, and the anchor gets to its full length of travel, it will stop. If auto deploying the anchor, once the deploying anchor gets to its full length of travel or comes in contact with the bottom, it will go through an anchoring sequence determined by the current Mode and then stop.

Retracting the Raptor from the Remote
